I added printie windows, doors, and rugs. I think it gives a tin lithograph feeling to my little house. That's appropriate for the furniture, too. Since I took these pictures, I added satin varnish to the windows and doors. I used winter scenes since this has been such a wintery winter. :-) This room still needs pictures on the wall, sheet music for the piano, a couple of plants, and maybe some magazines for the coffee table. Since it's the family room I may add some board games, as well. Oh, and all of the windows need some sort of curtains.
I need lamps for the bedside tables, a book or two, wall decor, perfumes and such for the vanity...
The bathroom needs rugs, towels, and toiletries.
I really like the dining/sitting room. The left wall has a matching door (the entrance to the house) and another window. I need drapes, a centerpiece, a chair side table with lamp and book or newspaper, candles or something for the mantel.
I like the kitchen, too. I made a tile backsplash behind the sink and cabinet and added a coordinating tile behind the range. I made the hanging cupboard and hung a couple of blue willow plates on the wall. I need to add some plants, a clock, and maybe a pot rack or at least a spice rack over the stove.
I've been happily married for 33 years to my high school sweetheart and we have three great kids. All are young adults. I'm currently working part time as an instructional assistant at the local elementary school. My mini life is especially important to me because it takes me away (better than a bubble bath!) from the stresses of real life. I've been involved with mini-ing since the late 1980s with a break for about 10 years while my children were young.
My faith and my family are very important to me. I am so thankful that God blessed me with the gift of creativity!
